    I know this year was a tough one but as i was reading NCAA previews I saw this piece on the Conf tourney - even looking at it from another teams perspective it is a great event:

    I missed it this year but if we show signs of life next year I'll be back.

    Some friends and I went the first year it was in Vegas and had a blast. Stayed at the MGM with all the other Pac 12 fans and never had a dull moment. The uncertainty surrounding how far the Buffs go in the tourney was the only drawback as it's hard to plan the trip until you know seeding.

    Yeah that's the obvious way to go, but 4 days/nights in Vegas is a lot to handle when you're doing it in your mid to late 20s, and I don't necessarily mean financially.

    Did it this year just fine. Except for the flu/cold I picked up at Wet Republic on the last day there.

    Ha, sorry, I figured you were in your mid to late 30's like everyone else on this site and went with wife and kids. My bad. You must be a better partier than me, though.

    A typical day consisting of the following... Eat, sports book, tables, Pool, game, eat, sports book, tables, eat, tables, party, tables, eat, sleep, repeat ...Typically only allows me to hang for 2 full days, 3 if I'm lucky.

    Ha because of the 6pm time slot, was able to sleep until like 11am this year. Worked out very well.

    I can't remember exactly what time the games were when we went but they were during the day because we had basically gone straight from the MGM's lazy river, if I remember correctly. Can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning!

    That trip is what sparked my hatred for AZ fans. Those assholes are loud, arrogant and outnumber every other fan base by at least 5-1 (probably more). Fun **** talking when you're walking around the casino, though.

    Been all three years in Vegas and cannot recommend it highly enough. In Wed and out Sun. 11 games and a ton of fun.

    Replace eating with snorting. The hangover after will be killer, but you can make it all four days partying.

    Never in my 25 years on this planet have I been offered coke. Was offered 3 times this past week in Vegas.

    I'm fairly surprised by that. I think I first had it offered when I was 16. Saw it around in HS, college, and now post college, from many many different groups of people.
